From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally-friendly abodes, the North Shore is full of one-of-a-kind homes.
Each week, Patch features one ‘Wow House’ that catches our attention. This week, a totally restored mansion in Highland Park that was built as a general's quarters for Fort Sheridan in 1892. It's listed at $3,495,000.
In addition to the eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces, two jacuzzis and indoor lap pool, the home also features a wine cellar, a sauna, a dance studio and a view of the lake.
